With legendary SubA aerodynamics performance, the Timemachine’s recipe for success is clear – superior tube shaping, maximum component integration, and an extensive rider positioning system. For middle and long-distance triathlons or time trials, the new Timemachine is the must-have bike for races against the clock.

Following a two year partnership with Sauber Engineering, anewly revised SubA concept summarizes our aerodynamic advantages: 3:1 tubes with truncated profiles, crosswind-stabletube shapes, hinge-fork design, a super-lean frontal area and maximum integration overall. Combined with our Position-to-Perform (P2P) rider-position system, this machine is all about free speed – for long course triathlons, time trials or solo efforts in wind-swept terrain.
BMC brought the first hinge-fork to the market more than adecade ago, but being the first is not enough for our engineers. We have refined the third generation of our proprietary hinge-fork to create an even leaner frontal area with seamless form and maximized function. Hidden brake calipers, cables,and housing, and an all-new hidden seat clamp make this bikefeel practically invisible to the rider and more importantly, the wind.
A slippery-fast frame is a good start – but adding a versatile, aerodynamic positioning system for the rider breaks records. There fined Position-to-Perform (P2P) system lets triathletes find their ideal contact points without sacrificing aerodynamics, no matter how aggressive or conservative their front-end position.
Stable in crosswinds and lightning fast in straight lines, predictable handling in your aero position, an adaptable cockpit for short or long reach preferences and high or low stack heights, the‘Quick-pad’ brake cartridge system for swapping out your racing and training wheels, fuel and equipment storage…all of the signs point to multi-sport performance. If your race includes abike split, this is the machine for you.
